    Hello, I'll be traveling to Disney World in a few months and staying offsite. I like the convenience of the MagicBands. Can non resort travelers purchase the MagicBands online or at the resort and use it at the parks for FastPasses and purchases?

    Hi ya Rene!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are what kick off our trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. My children know that when the collection of MagicBands comes out of the closet, our trip isn’t too far away. If they could they would wear their MagicBands everyday!

    MagicBands are very convenient they are your all-in-one accessory to the parks! Your park admission can be linked to them, using the My Disney Experience App, and FastPass+ reservations can be loaded onto them. MagicBands can also be used by Disney PhotoPass photographers to load and store your photos taken to your account with a simple tap! The only thing you are unable to do with your MagicBand is charge purchases to your room. This benefit is reserved for Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel.

    The good news is that you are able to purchase a MagicBand to use during your visit before you arrive or when you arrive. There are many options to choose from online, as well as, at the many shops located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. I always use a MagicBand when I visit because of how convenient it is to have everything loaded right there on my wrist! Honestly, the hardest part is selecting which MagicBand to purchase!

    See ya real soon!
